“We were surprised to see the roots in our drains! Thank you for repairing the drains and for such an efficient and friendly service.”

A booking to unblock drains at a property in Chalfont St Giles quickly developed into a full drain repair job when Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians couldn’t remove the blockage with high-pressure water jets.

Following the drain jetting, CCTV push-rod cameras were used to inspect the drain system, where a mass of roots was found to be causing the blockage.

It wasn’t possible for the drain to be repaired on the same visit and so a return visit was booked for the drain repair to take place.

Returning to the site for the scheduled drain repair appointment, Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians undertook a cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining procedure and three point repairs to the original pipe.

CIPP lining is a no-dig method of drain repair suitable for many drains damaged by root ingress.

This method of drain repair is hailed as a revolution in the drainage industry. A liner impregnated with chemicals is winched through the damaged section of the drain and bonded to the interior of the pipe using air or water pressure.

CIPP repairs are quicker to carry out than traditional drain excavation and replacement and are also cheaper. They are therefore recommended by Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians when they are deemed appropriate.

On completion of the drain repairs at the Aylesbury property Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians tested the system to ensure that there were no leaks and that the drains were running properly.

Our technicians are all City and Guild qualified to the highest standards, having many years of drain repair experience between them.

You can be sure that Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage will repair your drain and guarantee the work that we have carried out for a minimum of 30 days (unlike many of our competitors who have 7-day guarantees).
